Greg’s favorite quote:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving
safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, camera in one hand,
dive equipment in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOO HOO... what a ride!’
Greg lived life to the fullest!
